TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ Stefanie Dolson scored 16 points and top-ranked Connecticut moved a step closer to the longest Division I winning streak in college basketball history by beginning Big East play with an 80-54 rout of South Florida on Thursday night.

The two-time defending national champions never trailed, scoring the first 12 points of the game and building a 22-2 lead before USF (5-3, 0-1) finally made its first field goal with just more than 9 minutes left in the opening half.

The Huskies (7-0, 1-0) extended the longest winning streak by a women’s team to 85 games– three shy of the men’s record set by UCLA from 1971-74. UConn can surpass that mark by defeating Sacred Heart, Marquette, No. 6 Ohio State and No. 15 Florida State over the next three weeks.
